Lovely place to stay in quintessential English village. Very friendly staff and locals. We had the pleasure of candel lit dining room upstairs to ourselves when downstairs was full on Halloween. Staff were very helpful above and beyond, can't praise them enough. Many thanks.

Atmospheric, cosy, very friendly pub -- the sort of place you would wish for as your local. Excellent range of beers and a few ciders. Had the coffin stout and a few Belgians. Have eaten here a few times and found the food to be very reasonably priced and pretty decent. This time had the potato and meat pie with... More

Nice beer drinkers pub. Great selection of beers. First night we enjoyed good food and good atmosphere. However we had lunch the next day but that wasn't so good even though the pub was quiet. Fish and chips were nice but a chicken breast dish was cold in the middle. My husband asked for a replacement but received he same... More

Visited here for a friends birthday and was blown away. The pub itself has a lovely atmosphere and drinks are reasonably priced. There was quite a big group of us so we pre booked our table. I had the meat and potato pie which was beautiful and I got a huge portion. My boyfriend had the belly pork which was... More

I have been to the Old Poets many times, usually for a lunchtime meal and a sample of the local beers. On one visit I was surprised by the offer of 'beer tapas', an opportunity to try 3 third pints of different beers. With so many on offer it seemed like an opportunity to good to miss. There is a...

I've been here many a time for pub quizzes, food and over night stays and I have never had reason to regret anything( barring to much real ale). The menu is great and the food is above expectations. The range of real Ales beats most pubs and it's acoustic nights are welcoming. The quiz is fun and open to all... More

Visited on a Sunday night - very busy. The food was just average. I chose haddock and chips. the batter had a burnt taste to it. My husband chose a curry which was tomato based and peppery but no spices could be identified. I had a coke to drink but left it as tasted quite soapy. On a positive side,... More

Stayed B&B for two nights. Room size was small, and water pressure in shower was low. Late drinkers, musicians and quiz master/team should learn to depart quietly in the early hours! Friendly caring staff. Wonderful food; reasonable prices and big portions. Fantastic range of real ales. The best breakfast I have had anywhere. Very dog friendly.

Second lunchtime visit to the Old Poets' Corner this time for Sunday lunch. We were a party of 10 and all opted for the Carvery. The meats all looked very well cooked, offering a choice of Beef, Pork and Turkey. Each were accompanied with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, parsnips and leek bake. You then had a self serve choice of... More

We came here to eat after it was recommended to us by people where we were staying in Chesterfield. I'm very glad we did - it was fantastic! There is a small car park round the back where there is also some outdoor seating. We sat in the restaurant area of the bar. The choice of real ales and ciders... More
